The boys are all together now!

I only waited a week, I just could not stand to wait any longer!
But I figured since they came from the same breeder within weeks of each other and Casper and Felix are so big already, it should be ok...
Actually it was perfect, like they had always known each other.
The younger ones were more interested in the bigger boys at first.

Toby and Miles were very nonchalant and acted like...
oh hey, it's you guys.
Then they all tried to get in the one small pouch...

They played in the free range area for a couple of hours. Running in and out of their tunnel, smelling and chasing each other.

Toby and Miles looking for Casper and felix.

Casper and Felix hiding in the tunnel, still not so sure about open spaces.

I totally cleaned and disinfected the cage.
Then put in all new/clean hammocks and toys, added all 4 boys and crossed my fingers.
That was 2 days ago and was completely uneventful.
They all sleep in the same hammock, wrestle, take each others food, groom each other, chase each other and get so much more excited when I bring them out, since there are more of them to chase each other. :)
I am so glad I got 2 more now, while everyone was still so young. I was not sure at first, but having 4 little boys has been amazing. They are so cute together and playing with 4 is much more exciting than just 2...for me and the boys! :)

I love your blog. It's like a well written story that I can't get enough of. I am glad my babies found you as a home.
